At first, I sorta rolled my eyes and spluttered; "oh, what…it…man, this is…jeez…" But then, I remembered what it might have been like to see a Coke can with an ad for a video game on it 25 year ago. …I would've fallen over dead.
Yes, the industry really has made great strides over the past few decades, and it's basically a mainstream entertainment venue at this point. Want further proof? What you're looking at here is the new Modern Warfare 2 -themed Monster energy drink. As revealed over at YOURemgn , these specially labeled drinks will get you into a drawing where you could feasibly win all sorts of goodies. This includes a copy of the game in question, download codes for the first available Map Pack, and we're assuming…um…money? Who knows what else might be winnable? On each can, you will read the words: "Creator Infinity Ward hooked us up with an advanced copy of MW2 and we were so stoked on the game we put it on our can." If you want to purchase a Sam's Club exclusive 6-pack, you'll get access to the new Combat Training Experience for Modern Warfare 2 , which is an upcoming online event hosted by the developers. Well, we figure you'll need the extra energy when you go all night on November 10, right?
This reminds us of the energy drink the Japanese will receive that celebrates the launch of Final Fantasy XIII . This is cool and all, but I think the last thing we need are more people sitting still and ingesting more caffeine.
